Equine photography only.
Recognised? It’s Cigar at Saratoga in 1996.
He’s most famous by seventeen (!) straight wins including the World’s richest races, Breeders Cup Classic and Dubai World Cup, and, of course, earnings — almost $10.000.000
In my opinion, this photo is rare, ‘cause I spent a lot of time to find it.
The Fugue after finishing eleventh in Gr. I Dubai Duty Free Stakes, her worst start ever.
Seattle Slew, the tenth Triple Crown Winner.
Photo from another American Triple Crown loss. California Chrome after finishing fourth in Belmont Stakes.
My personal favorite, The Fugue has been retired from racing ‘cause of injuring herself in last start, Gr. I Coral Eclipse Stakes.
Of course, it’s understood, that the retirement is natural process, and the best way for her. But I definitely would miss her at the Breeders Cup. I belive, this awesome horse gave us all she could.
Thanks for the best racing memories. Happy retirement, The Fugue!
And german team from this year’s Wiesbaden — Gerrit Schepers and Caroll.
